Club Petrovich Moscow

Club Petrovich - Петровичи и Петровны


History of the Club

Who is “Petrovich”?

The concept of club is based on the figure of main hero of Andrey Bilzho’s drawings from “Kommersant” magazine – Petrovich, and the main point of its corporate identity became ironic nostalgia for good old soviet times, for our common past. You can see everyday items of that times in the interior of the club (presents of club’s members), “soviet” style art-objects. Meal from our childhood well-known to everyone is served on plates and dishes decorated with Bilzho’s drawings. The atmosphere is absolutely peculiar here – it is domestic, cozy, filled with sense of humor. At the same time the “Petrovich” club is a museum, restaurant and… house, where you want to return.

The way it all started


Why are Pound and Ounce abbreviated as "LB" and "OZ" ???

Most of our abbreviations for units of measurement are pretty straightforward. They are made up of letters from the words they stand for. So how do we get lb for “pound” and oz for “ounce”?

Lb is an abbreviation of the Latin word libra. The primary meaning of libra was balance or scales (as in the astrological sign), but it also stood for the ancient Roman unit of measure libra pondo, meaning “a pound by weight.” We got the word “pound” in English from the pondo part of the libra pondo but our abbreviation comes from the libra. The libra is also why the symbol for the British pound is £—an L with a line through it. The Italian lira also used that symbol (with two lines through it), the word “lira” itself being a shortened version of libra.


Ubuntu Forums have been Hacked!

From on July 27th:

Ubuntu Forums is down for maintenance

There has been a security breach on the Ubuntu Forums. The Canonical IS team is working hard as we speak to restore normal operations. This page will be updated with progress reports.

What we know

Unfortunately the attackers have gotten every user's local username, password, and email address from the Ubuntu Forums database.
The passwords are not stored in plain text, they are stored as salted hashes. However, if you were using the same password as your Ubuntu Forums one on another service (such as email), you are strongly encouraged to change the password on the other service ASAP.
Ubuntu One, Launchpad and other Ubuntu/Canonical services are NOT affected by the breach.

Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) Spotted over Chicago 6/21/13 at 9PM

Video posted below - please click read more to view...

While sitting on my couch watching "Brain Games" on NatGeo TV, my wife yelled out "What the heck is that" and I turned to see a red, pulsating object drifting upward about 100 feet, then change direction and head along an altered vector in a steady, linear fashion. I thought for sure it was something goofy a neighbor was doing but since there was a story posted earlier today about UFO sightings "on both side of the Atlantic" I figured I'd start rolling with my HTC G2 camera. The video quality is as you would expect, somewhat crappy, but as I was capturing this flying/drifting object I then stared hard at it to see if it was anything I could decipher. But honestly, I have no idea what the heck it was. It went behind a tree and never came into view on the other side, but I saw neighbors on their balconies pointing and gawking at it too.


My definition of "Morale" - ABCDE

The Beatings will Continue until Morale Improves!

A - Altruism
B - Belief
C - Confidence
D - Discipline
E - Enthusiasm

From :

Enlightened self-interest that looks like altruism

Add these three elements together, and you will start behaving in a manner that others interpret as altruism. You will exhibit a strong interest in your community, peers and colleagues, because doing so is how you make the formula work on your behalf.

Here's the critical part: you must adopt all three! If you adopt just one, your life won't go so well.


The Balloonist and the Engineer Below

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below says: "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field."

"You must be an engineer" says the balloonist.

"I am" replies the man. "How did you know?"
